In The Crowd (Almost)
GD music was on AM radio later that year. Pop GD!
I saw the 10th on a freebie won from KSJO - At the fairgrounds I heard the buzz about the taping for a Touch Of Grey video. That turned out well.
While that was goin down, I was under the trees a few miles away, playing guitars with lucky Bill. I slept in a step-van - decorated with my copy of the famous over-sized B&W poster, the whole band in front of Mickey's Barn - no hassles.
I'll add something to 5-10, since that's when I finally caught up to the dragon....
Hearing this now feels nice and the vocals sound good 'specially Phil and Brent, 900,000 tons...Solid.
I'm thinking it's a weird mix. I hear the crowd more than some - not great presence - probably too much head room - when levels are brought back up to snuff, the result is that the recording will lack range but there is some depth and no clipping.
This might be improved upon.
Thanks, for reading. Mike.

Was at this show, and I too remember the squishy ground - thought it was in my head until seeing confirmation here. BTW - there are very high-quality tapes out there, recorded in front of the soundboard (I helped smuggle the equipment in). Have not though spoken to the "chief engineer" in many years, so can't really guide on how to get 'em.

What a day
This was my first full Dead show although I did see JGB in '84 at Club Casino in Hampton Beach, NH. I too remember the bouncy ground down on the left side of the stage. It was like walking on a huge blister on the ground. I came back and told my girlfriend about it and she just looked at me like yeah, right. Ry Cooder opened and was fantastic. I had never seen him before but every song made you want to dance. Hornsby also played and did his version of I Know You Rider and thanked the Dead for letting him do it.
I also remember the calamari too, although I didn't eat any. I remember thinking that was strange concert food. It was a great learning experience.
1. Don't bring non-Deahhead girlfriends to the show unless you're pretty sure they'll like it.
2. Find a better way to locate your friends. I had a friend I was supposed to meet and didn't find him until the concert ended and he was probably within 100 yards of me the whole show.

Pretty much, good ol' GD. A breezy tape, tho its quality is far from perfection.
1st Set: When's the last time they opened the show with "Sugar?" The intentions are all good, but they're just getting revved up. No "SD" at this point, as they segue into a flashy tho '87 thin "Sugaree." "Uncle's" sways with conviction and the polite polka's ("Mexicali") pokeying me with delight. Bobby's guitar work here, tho meekly pronounced, is timed perfectly. Let's just "Push" on to the next one, shall we. (Standard) This is one of the better "Tons" I've heard due to Brent's impassioned vocals. The 'new' stuff keeps being thrown our way this time with a slide-addled "Esau." "Tennessee" is fine, but like most of the set, lacks that final 'electric' bite. Not so for "Let it Grow" which stands out because it actually has ambitions beyond its construct. I know, a rarity for '87.
2nd Set: "Touch" is pretty strong despite Jerry's weak voice and a penchant for forgetting lyrics. "LLR" is pretty, but achieves little of the country-soul highs of the one I heard last night, 3/28/72-DP 30. "He's Gone" is nicely tempered-its haunting vocal outro segues right into "Drums/Space" that pass along like gentle thumping whispers in the incandescent light. "The Wheel" lilts its way into existence, and strikes an internal note. The hands start clapping as "TOO" is set to board. An artifical demonic Weir strokes the abbreviated proceedings. "Wharf" is well-performed, but lacks the requisite sadness. "Around" starts the road home with verve, and "SD" completes the equation with aplomb.
We encore with the lively, if too-ubiquitous "Iko," enabling good vibes to extend til morrow.

This weekend was the most fun I had in my whole GD experience. Weather was great, 50,000 people camping etc. First time I ever tried Calamari (yes they were selling Calamari in the show ). Lying down on the ground at the bottom of the hill near the stage u could feel the earth moving due to the lagoons under neath (very nice effect). Touch of grey video was fun, though a bit long ( over at 5:00 a.m.) After making the touch video I was still up and wandering around the campground and ran into Bill Graham cruising around on his moped picking up trash. With the music, freedom, people and the scene I was in heaven. This was sooo much fun and ranks as the most fun I had at a Dead show/s.There was Nothing left to do but smile, smile ,smile!!!!!!

My first Dead show
They practically played in my backyard, which was a mere 2 miles away. I was 17 and had a blast. I've been looking for this show for a long time, as well as the other Seca shows that I went to. I'm glad to have finally found it! :-)
ok...I cruzed up from SB with my marginally sane cousin (non deadhead, but fond participant in all things ritual and percussive)...having 1 dead show between the two of us...and lots of ganj to cure the invariable down time...Should I keep it short...it could go all night? Anyhow, jumped the fence with some new found friends, got chased up the hill by mongoloids on atvs, blended, got blown away by the scene and never "stole" a show again (but attended many and copped a tude about those who would poach and not pay of course...)...Unfortunately, I'm still not sure whether the mushroom cloud I saw on the horizon during the next year's shows (after failing a history final and dropping some of Howard Laird's liquid) was real or just the boys at Fort Ord playing...Oh yeah, and my non deadhead friend - a famous heavy metal drummer (ok, not that famous) was carried away by the rhythm - permanently.
Oh yeah...great show too. Cant beat that sound from the campground..."is that them playing again or is it the neighbor's stereo..."

This was an amazing weekend...almost better than the shows overall..
They shot the Touch of Grey video at midnight between shows -- everyone ran up there thinking there'd be a free show, lol!
I remember the second show being stronger -- in fact the first four tunes were among the hottest to open a show I've seen (50+ shows)..Half-Step-Stranger-West LA-Minglewood..great stuff.
Agree about Weir's playing (Sugaree) -- check him out on Stranger the next night -- some crazy licks during the jam!
One of my best Dead memories...

Weir and Lesh
Weir and Lesh are incredible. Check out Weir's playing on "Sugaree," Lesh on "Let It Grow." Amazing. Jerry's having a decent night too. The only drawback is the ho-hum set list, especially post-space (excepting the "Iko" encore).
